Delhi: Cops shot at and thrashed

Delhi: Cops shot at and thrashed, accused boasts of being a gangster

An off-duty Delhi police constable was shot at and another was hit with a pistol butt in a case of road rage in Narela on Wednesday night. The victims have been admitted to a city hospital and hunt is on for the accused.

The incident took place in front of the main gate of a housing colony in Narela when the two men – Constable Pawan Kumar and constable Vikash – who were in their private vehicle asked a man in a Fortuner to move his car. “This angered the driver. He took out a pistol and shot Pawan in his leg. He hit the second constable with the pistol butt,” said DCP Rohini Rishi Pal. The driver also boasted that he is gangster Monu Dabodia.

Police suspect that the accused could be related to slain gangster Neetu Dabodia who was in the list of top Delhi criminals. Neetu Dabodia was killed in a police encounter in south Delhi in October, 2013.

One of the constables is a resident of the Narela housing society where the incident took place. Eyewitnesses told police that the Fortuner car had stopped at the gate of the society and the driver was asking for directions. Constables Pawan and Vikash also reached the spot in their car and honked asking the Fortuner driver to give them way. Police said the driver in the Fortuner flew into rage and attacked the two men.

9-year-old boy’s naked body with ‘cigarette burns’ found in park in Delhi

New Delhi , July 13 : A nine-year-old boy’s nude body, marked with deep cuts and possible burns, was found in a public park in south Delhi’s Pul Prahladpur on Tuesday.

The boy’s family alleged that he was tortured before being murdered as there were burn marks on his body. They suspect that the killer had stubbed burning cigarettes on his body before killing him.

Romil Baaniya, DCP (south-east), said he wanted to wait for the autopsy report to confirm if the boy was tortured or sexually abused before being murdered.

The nature of the injuries on the body has led the boy’s family to allege that an object like a screw driver or an ice-prick was used to kill him.

“There were deep puncture marks on the boy’s body which suggested a sharp object was used,” said the DCP.

According to his family, the boy had left his home to play with his friends on Tuesday afternoon. As it began raining soon after, his parents thought he must have been stuck somewhere when he did not return home in sometime.

But when the boy did not return home even by evening, his family and neighbours launched a search in the area. They also alerted the police when they could not trace him.

The boy’s body was finally found around 10.30pm in a park, less than 500 metres from his home. A visitor had spotted the body in the bushes and had raised an alarm.

“Given the weather, it is possible the body had begun to decompose quickly and left marks,” the DCP reasoned about the “burn marks”.

A murder case has been registered at Pul Prahladpur police station. However, no breakthrough in the case was made until Wednesday night. The police remained clueless about the killers as well as the possible motives behind the murder.

The investigators are searching for CCTV footage on the possible routes the boy took from his home. They are also speaking to his friends in a bid to know the killer’s identity.

The boy lived with his parents and sister in Pul Prahladpur. His father runs a business in the area and mother is a housewife.
